The Successful Transfer Structure in Washington State
Sherman, Jane; Andreas, Michelle
New Directions for Community Colleges, n160 p17-29 Win 2012
How did Washington create a clear organizational structure that assigns responsibility for each aspect of transfer policy to the group that is best suited to manage it (Kisker, Wagoner, and Cohen, 2011)? In this chapter, the authors will introduce the agencies, organizations, and entities that have played a key role in gathering information, analyzing data, negotiating interests, and implementing transfer policy in Washington State. They also describe the critical events that shaped Washington's successful 40-year history of transferring students from community and technical colleges to independent and public universities, as well as more recent policies that will shape its future. They end the chapter with a quick summary of some secrets to the state's transfer system success. (Contains 1 figure.)
